Hi, a friend of mine is turning 50 and her husband said he wanted a "barn yard wedding wood decor stained glass floral hearts white wash wood planks"  I have absolutely no ideas at all, including the cake board deco lol 

I am doing a double 10" single 8" and double 6" 

And ideas or help would be appreciated, due next week and I don't even have a design lol

could you rewrite that with some commas (and look who's asking shame on me) because there are several different ways to go depending on how you read it -- or ask the client to elaborate, add commas for you

Barnyard wedding, wood decor, glass, floral hearts, white wash wood planks! 

i don't have to incorporate everything, but basically he's looking for modern, rustic, western cake

Make a small fondant or gumpaste hen house/barn and put a few tiny chicks around on the top 6" &/or the top of the lgst tier.   tier.  The barn can be made with  those whitewashed wood planks.  Then add tiny floral hearts on the sides.

Not sure how to add glass :(    To further enhance the whole thing as a barnyard maybe make a couple of horses on the bottom tier.  These can be just 'cutouts' or painted on or 3-d gp animals.  It would only take maybe 3 or 4 around a 10".  If 3-d maybe make tiny, tiny floral hearts as a necklace or branding on the horses :)  If you don't go w/the barn on top, again make it just a cutout/painted  around the sides of the lgst tier.   I sure can picture this in my head:)

With the inspiration I gave you can incorporate the floral hearts in the "rope tier" can do stained glass on the top tier and add a feature flower (just 1) everything on this cake is 2D and having something 3D would make it pop.......the bird/(s) optional :)

Maybe carve the double 10" round into a sort of vase/torso shape (narrow in the middle), have all sorts of plants and flowers growing up along the sides. Square cake on top looking like a wooden crate (white washed wood) with the flowers from underneath growing slightly into it and the crate filled with "hay" and a ball cake with stained glass effect on top of the wooden crate/ resting on the "hay"/ crate.
